DETROIT A memorial service will be held on Thursday to celebrate the life and legacy of former State Representative Alma G. Stallworth, honoring her decades of public service, political activism, and devotion to family and community. A live stream of the service will be available in this article and here at 12 p.m. on Thursday. Stallworth was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1932, and moved with her family to Detroit as a young child.
